    Don't 'harvest the pickups' ... fix up the guitar so it plays, a fret level will make a surprising improvement in playability. Fewer of those around anymore because people rip out the pickups and toss the husk. There are players who are searching for the quirky 60s Teisco guitars, just be patient when selling if you are not one of them. That's a zero fret on there, don't try to 'convert it' to a regular nut or it will never play in tune.

    I have the same style of serial number tag on a 1963 Teisco Tulip so I knew about what you have just seeing that picture of it. Someone had tried using a conventional nut on mine and it didn't play. I returned it to working with the zero fret, installing stainless frets along the way (that was the concern with the old zero frets is they could wear but with stainless that is unlikely to happen).

    Open book headstock is a rarity.... Which puts it from the 60s to the early 70s when the famous 'lawsuit' happened.

    You have a vintage, MIJ, pre-lawsuit open book headstock, SG copy. I'd fix it and either play it or sell it.

    I was telling (Denise) Dick jokes. I decided to edit it out.

    It does look like it.
    Some Tarantino fan would pay good money for that guitar.

    Oh man I want to tell Biggus Diccus jokes from British movies. But I know we'll get locked up.....lol Back to the thread.

    Nice guitar. I have a Teisco with dual gold foil pups that I picked up off of CL for 80.00 and you got the amp to boot. All in all a nice days work again.

    Taped it, I looked it up this morning, and found it on today. I'll watch it later tonight.

    I didn't notice it till late last night, but there is a crack down one side of the head stock. I'll throw up a pic, but you're right, I think I'll leave it alone! Somebody might be hunting parts, and it's right handed so no use to me!
    Amp on the other hand, has a Great clean channel! I'll swap speakers, and sell the amp.

    Well, it looks like the guitar thinks it is a Gibson.
